Update: 106 Unit proposal at 625 Highway 97 - rezoning denied

Updated: Oct 22

October 21, 2021


This felt much more like a regional discussion rather than an Area "F" issue simply due to the location of the project. There were a number of arguments against for environmental reasons (carbon footprint, Okanagan Lake, outside of fire services, LWMP, etc.). You can watch the meeting on YouTube or see page 964 of today's agenda for more information.


Given that we have started the Regional Growth Strategy review the board also felt that it made the most sense to wait until the review is complete.



This is between Fitzpatrick Winery and Okanagan Lake Provincial Park North.
